Scientists observed one Bactria that made them think that Bactria does age. First, asymmetric cell division happened in the bacteria studied. During cytokinesis one of the daughter cells would asymmetrically take with it, one older pole. This observation caused several questions about aging in bacteria. There was therefore the need to know whether a bacterium loses fitness when it undergoes cell division and if aging leads to death or improved adaptability and fitness. Getting answers to these questions and the overall explanation of aging in bacteria will help to put the stalemate into perspective. I, therefore, turn my attention to vindicate the critiques of this hypothesis (Curtis & Brun 2010).
